MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Thirty-two members of the West Virginia University rowing team have been named to the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll, announced today by the league office.
A record 3,224 student-athletes have earned recognition to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll during the 2013-14 academic year. Student-athletes named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better.
Rice placed the highest number of student-athletes on the honor roll, producing 235 members who participate in conference-sponsored sports. Tulsa followed closely with 228, while East Carolina ranked third with 195 student-athletes on the list.
Student-athletes with a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better also receive the Commissioner’s Academic Medal. Those winners will be released tomorrow.
The Mountaineers have been an affiliate of C-USA since beginning Big 12 competition in 2012-13. Due to C-USA’s automatic bid to compete at the NCAA Championships, several programs from the Big 12 and Southeastern Conference have joined the conference as affiliate members.
